    It's nice to stare at isn't it... The guys fishing add to the scene of tranquility and it makes you want to be there with feet in the water wetting a line as the sun goes down.

    I know this isn't great photography (but it is a sunset pic :p) I took this with my mobile phone when we were on our cruise to NZ in January - it's in the middle of the Tasman Sea.

    Lets try a sunrise this time. I generally find a sunset has better colours than a sunrise but this particular sunrise i took from my front yard earlier this year changed my thoughts on that a bit. And to be honest, I'm more likely to be awake during a sunset than a sunrise so my odds of getting a good sunrise are low at best. Cheers

    Just got home from work today and looked up to see this biblical sunset.
    I felt like the hand of God was about to reach out.

    That's a great shot! Nice colours for a desk top background - fire red looks like central Australia.

    Same place, same time but we turned around and saw the sun lighting up the clouds behind us on the rail bridge. Pays to look in all directions.

    The famous Rock. it is packed at sunset with people lining the fence in the sunset viewing area. This was taken down the road a little away from the crowds.

    Sun set at the Sculpture Symposium at the Living Desert at Broken Hill. Again it was packed with people, apparently it's the place to have wine and cheese and watch the sunset. We did go there for sunrise in the freezing cold and were the only crazy people to do so and had the place to ourselves.

    20,000 people at the Anzac Dawn Service - Redcliffe. A very impressive sight.
